On the Pi Day of the century, the John Witherspoon Middle School Mathletes team of Ben Qi, Theodore Ehrenborg, Lawrence Chen and Richard Qi took first place in the state Mathcounts competition.

Eight grader Ben Qi placed second individually in the competition and will compete, for the second year in a row, at the national level.

JW teachers Matthew Sullivan and Alicia Perrine will coach the New Jersey team at the Mathcounts National Competition in Boston. Qi and three other New Jersey students will be competing with the top teams from around the nation.
